Storyline

The daily lot of Samir, an illegal immigrant, is precarious "jobs", hunger, cold and fear of the police. The dream of Mona, an old transvestite in decrepitude, is the operation that will allow her to change her sex. Samir and Mona will meet, join forces to survive until the murder. "Mona and Samir are two beings who are excluded from the world because they don't think like us. They are excluded because people think that they cannot give them something. Their dream is different from ours."
